Re: When I reboot I get a screen full of text how to pause?

The kernel likes to log all sorts of things. Mostly those messages are informational, not serious warnings or errors. If your system works fine after booting, then you can safely ignore those messages. If you want to read them, type journalctl -b in a terminal. There is a way to set a kernel boot p...

Re: Stop PDF from downloading to download folder

I don't think so, it is a mess in my opinion, when the PDF opens, I do a File Save AS, and put it where I want it, so that I can NAME it as it should be. the downloads invariably have some wild mix of characters in the name, which is not compatible with my scheme of naming things. then on occasion,...

Stop PDF from downloading to download folder

Is there a way to prevent documents to be automatically downloaded to the download folder when opened?
Every time I want to save for example a pdf to a specific directory it is also already saved in the download folder. So I end up with lots of double files.

Thank you very much

Re: Print to PDF in Evolution, or the case of the disappearing file part 2

Other side of it then could be that the save(as) dialog that it uses is remembering the last place it saved something to (in case you do use wine, that'd make sense, sort of anyway). Doesn't explain why $HOME is entirely empty though :( I do use Wine. But did not install Evolution within Wine. It a...

Re: Loud laptop after upgrade to Vanessa

Have a look at 'top' in Terminal. You are running out of RAM for some reason and using the swap. Does the fan run from boot, or just when you are doing whatever you are doing that is using lots of RAM? You might want to try Mate as it is a bit lighter - but that might depend on what is eating up RA...

Loud laptop after upgrade to Vanessa

I recently upgraded to Vannessa 21. I noticed the fan is blowing way more often then it did before with 20.3 version
I wonder....

Is this normal?

Can it be fixed?

All in all I am happy with the upgrade. Have the impression things run smoother.

Thanx a lot
